Veterans Day  is only two days away, and Cleveland and Bradley County veterans and veteran organizations are looking forward to Saturday’s 11 a.m. Veterans Day program.

The ceremony this year will be held at Cleveland’s 1st Street Square, just off Inman Street downtown, near the Cleveland’s Elks Lodge.

The highlight of this Veterans Day program, as it has been in the past, is the presentation of the Raymond H. Miller Patriotic Award. Veteran and auxiliary member Mary Baier will make the announcement of this year’s recipient.

Veteran Steve Stewart, former commander of the American Legion Post 81, will be coordinating this year’s activities for the final time. He and Cleveland Mayor Tom Rowland have been the coordinator and master of ceremonies respectfully for several decades.

Rowland stepped down last year, but he will be involved this year with a special presentation.

Stewart said Tuesday he has received considerable criticism for moving this year’s program to 1st Street Square.

Stewart emphasized this is, hopefully, a one-year situation.

Tennessee State Troopers confiscated 11 pounds of methamphetamine from a vehicle following a traffic stop in Nashville on Tuesday, according to a news release.

Trooper Donnie Clark stopped a gray 2014 Chevrolet Malibu on I-24 in Coffee County for a traffic violation. The driver, Shannon Baxter of Indianapolis, Indiana, was not cooperative in answering questions or behavior, and denied a request by Clark to search the vehicle.

A K-9 officer was deployed by the Coffee County Sheriff’s Office and gave a positive alert to drugs in the vehicle. Trooper Jason Boles responded to help Clark search the vehicle, and together they discovered 11 pounds of crystal meth packaged in five separate plastic containers, which had been concealed behind the back seats in the trunk area under the carpet.

Baxter and his passenger, Chanel Satter of Indianapolis, Indiana, were both arrested without incident on felony meth trafficking charges, and the case will be presented for federal prosecution, according to the release.
